Through a presidential initiative called We Can't Wait, President Obama has expedited seven solar and wind energy projects in Arizona, California, Nevada and Wyoming. Together, these infrastructure projects will produce nearly 5,000 MW of clean energy, according to the White House.

The five solar projects include the following installations:

- Quartzsite Solar Energy, a 100 MW concentrating solar power  (CSP) plant under development in Arizona by Solar Reserve. Its target time frame for federal permit and review decisions is this December.

- Desert Harvest Solar Energy, a 150 MW PV plant under development by enXco in California. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is this December.

- McCoy Solar Energy, a 750 MW PV plant under development by NextEra in California. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is this December.

- Moapa Solar Energy Center, a multiple-technology solar plant under development by RES Americas and the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians in Nevada. The 200 MW project would employ 100 MW of PV technology and 100 MW of CSP technology. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is December 2013.

- Silver State South, a 350 MW PV plant under development in Nevada by First Solar. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is March 2013.
